I am fairly new to SF development, and I have a SF sandbox and am using Eclipse along with Subclipse and SVN to manage it.

I created a new test class under classes, and added it to SVN. It shows up in the Package Explorer with the little SVN "plus" sign. But when I try to commit it, it says that it is not on the file system, and in fact, when I look there, it is not. The class has been saved to the server, and it runs fine both there and in the Eclipse test runner.

What am I missing here? None of the "Team" or "Force" options seem to apply.



  • You will need the Force.com IDE to use Eclipse to manage Salesforce.com metadata. Can you confirm that you have installed the Force.com IDE plugin for Eclipse? – greenstork Oct 7 '14 at 15:33

    Are you sure that either the force.com plugin or the subversion repository are not placing the files in a different location than you're looking at ? – Samuel De Rycke Oct 7 '14 at 15:39
  • Sorry... yes, I definitely have the Force.com IDE installed, as well as Subclipse. I have been using this for a bit, and was able to make changes and commit them before. This is a new file that I created today to merge in some contractor's code. – mitchmcc Oct 7 '14 at 15:46
  • Samuel,... you hit the nail on the head... I don't know how I got there, but I must have had an old SVN checkout laying around. thanks! – mitchmcc Oct 7 '14 at 16:01
